The picket toolbox

The picket toolbox | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

The 'picket' toolbox is all about celebrating summer alongside an abundance of color for the patio.

 

Most of these flowers are freshly cut from the garden and sitting in cups of water. The moss addition makes them appear as if they're planted.

Tool hideaway

Tool hideaway | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

You're out in the garden and you forgot to bring your trowel with you. So you stop what you're doing and dash back to the garage or toolshed to find it.

 

Here's a better solution: Keep your hand tools in the garden where you need them, but store them in a converted mailbox.

 

Here are tips for creating a hideaway of your own: http://goo.gl/OSO0X

A dry-bed bridge

A dry-bed bridge | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

"My wife wanted a dry-bed bridge for the backyard to compliment all of other landscaping ideas, so this is how it looks! Your probably wondering what this has to do with junk, right? Well, we had this old, beat up headboard and footboard laying around and we wanted the bridge to look unique, so we made those the hand railings. We turned them upside down to give the bridge a unique look, gave the railing a coat of off-white paint, and stained the rest of the bridge a dark green."

Create a solar-powered chandelier

Create a solar-powered chandelier | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

Using a chandelier found in the attic of a local antique store, Debra Anchors created this charming feature for her cottage-inspired garden.

 

Once you find a light fixture to re-purpose, strip the wiring and then follow the pictorial instructions to create your own solar-powered chandelier. Debra used a rubber-based, permanent bonding agent to attach the glass to the fixture base.

Holly, the third picture is of an inexpensive set of solar lights. I took them apart and used only the top containing the solar cell, battery, and the pin light. I glued the tops to the glass jars using E-6000 (bonding agent).

Roof-top garden bird feeders

Roof-top garden bird feeders | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

With ground covers on the roof, these easy-to-make feeders shelter the seed naturally.

 

One mud flat equals one bird-feeder roof: That's the formula for the canopy on these easy-to-construct bird feeders. Sturdy ground covers, such as moss, ivy, thyme, and small sedums, will grow in the shallow depth of the feeders' roofs.
